Huawei P40 available from RM69/month on Maxis Zerolution

Maxis is also offering pre-orders for the latest Huawei P40 and P40 Pro flagship smartphones. As usual, it is bundled with its MaxisONE postpaid plans in either Zerolution instalment or on a standard contract with a 24-month duration.

Huawei P40

The 6.1″ Huawei P40 with 128GB storage retails for RM2,799 and it can be yours for as low as RM69/month on instalment or from RM1,299 on a standard contract. Below is the monthly instalment for Zerolution and device pricing for the standard contract, excluding taxes and postpaid subscription fee.

MaxisONE Plan 158 – RM79/month
MaxisONE Plan 188 – RM69/month

Typically, there’s no upfront payment for the Zerolution instalment plan and the instalment plan is only applicable to existing customers with good payment records. All you’ll need to pay monthly is the device instalment amount together with your monthly postpaid plan fee.

However, for the normal contract, you’ll need to pay an “advance payment” which varies depending on the plan you pick and it will be rebated back to your monthly bill. The advance payment isn’t shown on Maxis’ website and it usually costs nearly RM1,000 for the highest MaxisONE Plan 188 option.

[ UPDATE 9/4/2020 14:20 ] The advance payment required for the standard contract is RM396 for MaxisONE Plan 98, RM516 for MaxisONE Plan 128, RM636 for MaxisONE Plan 158 and RM756 for MaxisONE Plan 188.
